Tell el-Farkha


Tell el-Farkha
   Modern name for a town site in the eastern Delta southeast of Mendes. The site contains buildings and graves that date from the Predynastic Period to the early Old Kingdom. It appears to have been founded during the Naqada II period. It has yielded pottery, seal impressions from the Early Dynastic Period, and in 2006 predynastic ivory figurines and decayed wooden statues covered in gold foil with inlaid lapis lazuli eyes from the Early Dynastic Period. Tell el-Farkha was discovered by an Italian expedition in 1987, which worked there until 1990, and since 1998 the site has been excavated by a Polish team.
